New Castle High School
Shelbyville High School
The boys varsity tennis team was defeated by Shelbyville Saturday 3-2. Rylan Huntley won at #2 singles 6-4, 6-3 and Grant Guffey won at #3 singles 6-2, 6-4. Varsity record is 8-9, 2-4 in the Hoosier Heritage Conference. The Junior Varsity tied 2-2. Chase Marcum and Blake McKown won at #1 doubles 8-3 and Jacob Lucas and Jackson Clapp won at #2 doubles 8-5. JV record is 4-5-3.
This was a fun day because we played a dual match with our middle school team. It was fun to have the young players with us and to watch them play. As for the varsity match, Rylan and Grant again played really well for us at singles. Rylan was playing with a slight knee injury and played really well. He was hitting all of his shots with authority and served very well. Grant played on of his best matches of the season and was making good shots to put pressure on his opponent.
